Suicide Engenders the Funny

The daughter of Don Red Barry was at our house on Saturday attending a writer's group party. DRB was a character actor who worked all the time.

He committed suicide in 1980, and his really bright daughter, perhaps overcompensating for what must have been a wretched childhood, had this hilarious dark sense of humor.

She said:

"My husband wants to make and sell a new blow up doll...for sex...of Mary. You know, with the blue veil and everything."

She pointed her two index fingers toward her head.

"And the doll has a name at the top. The title is You Be the First One."

As a parting gift, we gave her our Jesus Action Figure.
